Synopsis:
It's 1992, and the miners of Grimley Colliery are facing uncertainty. Not only is their pit under threat, but the Grimley Colliery Band is on the verge of breaking up – that is, until Gloria (Tara Fitzgerald) arrives. As the only female member of the band, she somehow manages to rekindle their enthusiasm for the forthcoming National Championship, as well as rekindling a childhood romance with Andy (Ewan McGregor). Led by the passionate Danny (Pete Postlethwaite) the band play on. Danny has his pride and his trombonist son, Phil (Stephen Tompkinson), has his problems. Problems which even Mr Chuckles, the down, can't seem to help him solve.
With the National Finals at the Royal Albert Hall looming, can they all hold it together and secure a famous victory for Grimley?

A marvellous film - Brassed Off review by KP

Spoiler Alert
04/04/2014

Apart from the absolutely brililant brass music from Grimthorpe Colliery band, it paints a true and realistic picture of the (then) plight of the miners, instead of the adverse and biased publicity given out by Thatchers media. A quarter of a million men lost their jobs due to the pit closures and to read and listen to the ridicule and dismissive comments of the media at the time you would think it was the miners' fault !
